COVID-19
 
With the NBA shutting down, the NHL can't/won't be far behind. How long before the OHL has no choice but to do the same? One has to wonder if they wouldn't even play the rest of the regular season.

I'm surprised that the CHL/OHL or the Dogs themselves haven't made a statement on what the plans are.

I wondered what would happen with the CHL after I saw what happened with NBA and what the NHL said. I think the CHL could last the weekend but at this rate I don’t think they’ll be finishing the season

I'm thinking the NHL will shut-down later today and the CHL will follow suit quickly after. I don't know how they can't.

Could this keep the IceDogs playoff streak in tact?
